"May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, as Christ accepted you..." Romans 15: 5-7
Masks.... we all wear them, and not just for Halloween. Often we mask our true feelings from others.
Behind the smiles and laughter, waves of tears and weariness might exist due to pain, loneliness, fear or hurt. If we dare remove our masks, what would happen? Embarrassment? Dismay? Rejection? Or, perhaps healing and understanding and encouragement.
Oh Father, how i pray we are the touch of You others need. Grow our compassion, sensitivity and heart to a godly size. May we be more like You today. Open our hearts and minds to aid in the healing of our sisters and brothers. We are One in You.
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
